Hi all,

Chapter 5 is now available for download. The chapter clocks in at nearly 40 pages. It turns out that anomaly detection takes a bit of work to explain.

The chapter follows Brett, who works for a big bank, as he automates the process of checking for errors and anomalies in invoices sent from solicitors. In the chapter, you learn why anomaly detection is a hard problem and how to use a machine learning algorithm called Random Cut Forest to solve the problem.

We hope you enjoy reading the chapter and get a lot out of it.

Please drop us a message in this forum if you have questions. In particular, we'd love to hear about how you are applying Sagemaker in your business.
